GIFs, The Language Of The Web: Their History, Culture, and Future

There is something about GIFs that captures our attention. They have no sound, and are low-quality . In a way, it’s little more than the digital version of a flip-book. Yet, the Internet loves using a GIF as a reaction. How did this phenomenon start, what makes it so popular, and where is it headed?

Remember that old gif? Just thought is was the bomb back in the day!

In fact, "GIF" stands for "graphics interchange format," a mature name for an image format just coming of age in the digital space (the GIF turned 25 this year). Specifically, Steve Wilhite of Compuserve debuted the GIF in June 1987. The GIF improved on black and white image transfers with 256 colors, while still retaining a compressed format that slow modems could load easily. Using the Graphics Control Extension (GCE), the GIF achieved animation via timed delays.

Explore the art of creating animated gifs for yourself. Creating your own will certainly help with your own website strategies. Style, form, color, and grace. Here's a few inspirtational examples from 3 different artists:

I like to start with the simple software first. Then work up to the more complex tools. I still use the old Animation shop for quick jobs. After you get to know the ins and outs of the simple stuff it offers a decent foundation to tackle the better software out there. 
 
....and here's 9 tools for creating your own. Some are web based and some are free.

You make a good point by starting simple. Using imaging software of any kind seems to allow a greater degree of understanding the art of using images to obtain an emotional response. It's like creating magic. Those who really understand the psychological influence generated by visual stimulation know this. Images can symbolize and represent many things. As a whole or in minuet detail. 

 

Perhaps the title of this thread doesn't do it justice. Consider the use of images: (whether stills or motion) They seem have changed the speed of emotions within the last century of their use. Maybe it should be called "The Language of Visual Stimulation".

I like that title. Only, I think the current one seems to apply more so because of the medium involved. The web! We're all in this web connecting to one another using various machines to accomplish this. Using text and images to communicate. The web is one powerful medium. Able to help leap tall buildings and fly up the sky in a single bound. So to speak...

Little green men. Ha! Well, currently a general is telling a group of new officers what to expect regarding these characters:
 
Army chief talks 'little green men,' and sets off UFO enthusiasts
 
 
UFOs my ass! Little green men are everywhere on this earth. Here's a realistic example:
 
"Little green men" or "Russian invaders"?
